Additional Book Details
MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia: Clinical Essentials for Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive-Communication Disorders succinctly presents critical information about the cognitive-communicative disorders associated with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). These are the profession's fastest-growing clinical populations: a new case of AD is diagnosed every seven seconds.
Notable features of this book include:
*A focus on Alzheimer's disease, the most common cause of dementia.
*Cutting-edge information about MCI, a very early stage of Alzheimer's disease, and the role of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in early identification and behavioral and/or pharmacologic treatments.
*Clinical essentials--definitions, assessments, and treatments--for MCI and AD for students and practicing professionals.
MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia: Clinical Essentials for Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive-Communication Disorders was written by individuals dedicated to studying the cognitive-communication disorders of dementia and who have developed standardized tests used extensively by SLPs. It is a must-have for clinicians and students who work with patients with MCI or Alzheimer's disease and is the ideal choice for instructors who teach adult language disorders courses, particularly those that focus on cognitive-communication disorders of adults with dementia.
